Today, developer Gun Media released another new gameplay trailer, as well as made a few announcements about new additions to the game following its beta.

According to Gun Media, many fans suggested that a Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives should be added into the game. And so Gun Media has done just that. This new Jason design is equipped with throwing knives and a long spear-like weapon. You can see the throwing knives premiered for the first time via the new trailer.

Gun Media also announced that a new song — Friday the 13th by The Misfits — has appropriately been added to the game. The song is said to be  a tribute to 80’s horror and slasher films.

Interestingly, the new trailer also reveals roadkills for the game, aka as a camp counselor you can kill a fellow camp counselor in the game by running them over. One fan points out that this sounds like a perfect opportunity to troll in the game, and to that Gun Media said it will have things in place to heavily discourage such things. The developer didn’t further divulge what this deterrent will be, but it did say it will have more information on it soon.

Friday the 13th: The Game is slated to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in Spring 2017. You can check out the new trailer below:
